Overview
More
The Christians followed Roman tradition and customs that the dead had to be buried outside towns. Manastirine, along with Kapljuc and Marusinac were private country lands for cemetaries. The reason was that in Salona, the first Christian cemeteries were created at the time of illegality, when Christianity had no right of preaching.
